    Rubermaid Tub

    Where do you find those large (100G) rubbermaid tubs? I checked with TSC as I thought there were water troughs but they don't sell rubermaid.

    Rubber Maid does have larger ones, and yes the sell them at CO-Op's and Feed stores. They are used as water storage/feed bins. I have a 100g that I use for my "Lagoon" tank. it's more for viewing down on the corals.

    Anybody know of a place in more southwestern ontario? Or at least a rough estimate of price? I am looking at a used one, from a fish guy and just want to compare.

    Are the Home Harware or Home depot units actually the "Stock Tanks" or just the home storage tubs?

    I have used the home storage tubs in the past for water and found they can/will crack.
